    • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    This was an absolute shambles of a hotel. Don’t write bad reviews however considering I’ve email them and over a week without a response or even a phone call I am not surprised. I strongly advise if thistle express are reading this respond to my email that I send to reservations email.

    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    Hotel in general was ok, but lights did not work in the bathroom, the room smelled of cigarettes and I could hear people talking in the next room half the night. Breakfast was good.

    • Liked: Amenities

    Bathrooms are outdated and could be cleaner. Some staff were very helpful, others quite rude and abrupt. Average breakfast, free hot drinks was a pleasing touch.
